For Immediate Release
ndxCards - Note taking, paper writing, index card software
Scottsdale, Arizona, August 10, 2003 - TruTamil LLC is now shipping version 1.9 of ndxCards(tm), its popular note taking, research paper writing application for Windows. Students, faculty and researchers can use ndxCards to organize and manage their notes and write research papers that include bibliographical references.
ndxCards uses the metaphor of an electronic index card to capture notes and ideas, which is unlike traditional tree structure based organizers. It provides the user freedom to organize notes by keywords, subjects, sources, and authors. The software includes features such as short cut keys, quick-complete fields and automatic generation of keywords to make taking notes easy, and has powerful filtering capabilities to quickly find only notes of interest.
The power of ndxCards lies with its ability to integrate with standard office software to enable the notes to be used directly and easily. Notes can be structured into an outline and exported as a MS Word document that includes bibliographic references. The outline can also be exported as a bulleted PowerPoint presentation. Notes can be ‘dropped’ as shapes in software such as Visio or PowerPoint for visual analysis.
Note cards can be ‘packed’ and shared - for instance, research teams can share notes on references and collaborate on papers. ndxCards can help improve personal productivity for anyone: high school or undergraduate students interested in improving study skills, graduate researchers interested in organizing research, or a freelance journalist writing a story.
ndxCards comes in multiple versions - The Academic version includes note types to capture quotations, or summaries, and has supporting cards for reference sources and authors. The Professional version includes action cards to jot down tasks and due dates, and reminder cards that act as alarms. The software is also is offered in a Superset version which includes features of both the Academic and the Professional version.
In response to user feedback, the new version includes resizable cards, improved printing on 3x5 or 4x6 Avery card stock, and ability to format references in APA, MLA or CMS styles.
ndxCards runs on Windows 95/98/Me/NT4/2000/XP with Internet Explorer 5.0 or higher installed. While the software does not use Internet Explorer, it takes advantage of Windows components that are installed as part of IE.
The Academic and the Professional versions of ndxCards are priced at $49 and the Superset version at $69 for a single named user license. Volume discounts are offered to educational institutions. A fully functional 15-day trial of ndxCards and additional information about the software is available at http://www.ndxcards.com.
